The sole Singapore restaurant that made it through to The World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2022 is, to no one’s surprise, the three Michelin-starred Odette at National Gallery Singapore. While Odette placed #8 on last year’s list, 2022 has this French fine-dining restaurant placed at a lower but still a noteworthy #35 – in any case, it’s been on this acclaimed list for years.
At the very top comes Geranium, a Danish restaurant in Copenhagen. It’s also the first Danish restaurant to have been awarded with three Michelin stars in 2016. This means that long-time frontrunner Noma is no longer at the top, partially because the new rules in 2019 states that the first ranking restaurant of last year’s list will be out of contention.
For a fine-dining restaurant though, Geranium is unusual in that it’s one that’s perched on the the eight floor of a football stadium. It was also opened in 2010, right in the middle of the financial crisis. Other best restaurants in Asia include Den, Tokyo (#20), The Chairman, Hong Kong (#24), Sorn, Bangkok (#39), La Cime, Osaka (#41), and Narisawa, Tokyo (#45).
